During Worship — GODLY PLAY
Age 4 through 3rd grade
(After Children's Message or at
10:30 am on Communion Sundays)
Godly Play is a way of exploring Bible stories and religious ideas  with children by way of storytelling and play response. It is based on Montessori methods of education. 
Nursery (ages 0-4)
Nursery care is offered each week during Sunday School and worship.

The class uses the "Holy Moly" curriculum. Children will learn stories of the Bible using video and crafts directed by the curriculum.
Nursery/Preschool Class
The children in the nursery preschool class will hear each week the same Bible story the older children will be studying in the elementary class.
Youth Class (grades 6-12)
The youth class will offer a variety of approaches for faith exploration and spiritual development via art, music, literature, cooking, and the "reForm:Ancestry" curriculum for the New Testament.
Adult Classes — in November/December 
The Present Word — Bible study using PC(USA) curriculum materials to explore how the scriptures relate to everyday life.  Meet’s in Pastors Room off Fellowship Hall. The student book will be provided.
From Jesus to Christ: The First Christians — We will watch and discuss the four-part PBS documentary originally broadcast in 1998 that tells the epic story of the rise of Christianity from the life and death of Jesus on through the men and women whose belief, conviction, and martyrdom created the religion we now know as Christianity.  For more information and a viewer's guide, click HERE .
